The majority of the animals at Little Shelter have been rescued from kill shelters on Long Island and New York City. 

 Every animal we save is assessed for temperament, so we have some degree of comfort that no serious behavioral problems exist. In addition, each dog and cat gets a thorough veterinary exam and receives the necessary vaccinations while they're in foster care. When you adopt a Shelter to Home pet, you will receive their health record and information about continued care.

At Little Shelter, these animals receive the highest quality medical care, are spayed/neutered, socialized, rehabilitated and loved until adopted.
